Fair use rationale for Image:RodolfoMoralesAngeldeAnoranza.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:RodolfoMoralesAngeldeAnoranza.jpg. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia constitutes fair use. Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. NOTE: once you correct this, please remove the tag from the image's page.

GA Review

Symbol unsupport vote.svg

Dear Robertlondon, I am sorry to inform you that I have failed Faile (artist collective) for GA status because of several issues, which are detailed on the article's talk page. If there are any comments you would like to make, or any questions you have about the failing of this article, then please forward them to my talk page. Good luck for a future candidacy. Regards,-- Anonymous DissidentTalk 08:28, 25 August 2007 (UTC)

Reply[edit]

Hi again. Firstly, about the email - there is not much to be done. Unless you can find independant, verifiable sources, that content remains unreferenced. Secondly, I would start a post on either the users talk page, or the articles talk page discussing the external link. See what he thinks and what others say. Take it from there. I hope I have been able to help a bit. -- Anonymous DissidentTalk 17:08, 26 August 2007 (UTC)

Re: The Restaurant (UK television series)[edit]

Hi there, thanks for your comment. Whilst it's not my intention to upset the regular editors of the article, such as yourself, the changes I implemented were needed for clarity, functionality and to replace the large amounts of original research present in the article as it was. As for the table, I'd contest your view that it is isn't an improvement - combined with the episode guide this is far more through synopsis of the series than was previously in place. I agree it was probably naive of me to hope that other editors would help fill in the contestant profiles, but this is a wiki after all. You only need to look at articles such as The Apprentice (UK Series Three), which I recently played a major part in bringing up to GA standard, to see that these changes are for the better. If it turns out that there is consensus to revert to the older version then feel free to do so. Seaserpent85 15:11, 15 October 2007 (UTC)

Hi again! I think there's a bit of a misunderstanding here - from what I saw the article had only just passed the stub stage, with certain sections needing some definite attention. The article as it was before had nowhere to include information about the contestants, therefore I added sections which are free to be expanded, unlike the previous table - I think this is quite a logical step forward, however I do agree I should have checked that I wasn't removing information as I did this. That aside, I'm getting the impression that the newer table is the main concern here - if it bothers you that much I don't mind you getting rid of it. Personally, I feel it provides the reader with a breakdown of the series - showing how often couples are in challenges or get restaurant of the week. But in the scale of things, this is a very minor part of the article, there are sections I could probably put time into improving - for example, moving most of the lead into a Format section and an inclusion of a Reception section. There's no need for you to apologise, I understand it's frustrating when your hard work gets rewritten - I'd probably have reacted in a similar way! Hope that clears it up a bit, look forward to maybe one day seeing the article at GA status :) Seaserpent85 10:51, 16 October 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:RodolfoMorales.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:RodolfoMorales.jpg. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use. Suggestions on how to do so can be found here.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Rettetast (talk) 16:52, 22 December 2007 (UTC)

Invitation to Wikipedia meetup in London[edit]

Wikimedia UK logo

Date: 13:00 onwards, Sunday 10 August 2008

Venue: Penderel's Oak pub, Holborn WC1 map

More information: Wikipedia:Meetup/London 12


Hello,

I noticed that you have listed yourself as a Wikipedian in London, so I thought you might like to come to one of our monthly social meetups. The next one is going to be on Sunday 10 August, which might well be rather short notice, but if you can't come this time, we try to have one every second Sunday of the month.

If you haven't been before, these meetups are mainly casual social events for Wikipedia enthusiasts in which we chat about Wikipedia and any other topics we fancy. It's a great way to meet some very keen Wikipedians, but we'd also love for you to come along if you're interested in finding out more about Wikipedia, other Wikimedia projects, or other collaborative wiki projects too.

The location is a pub that is quite quiet and family friendly on a Sunday lunchtime, so hopefully younger Wikipedians will also feel welcome and safe. Alcohol consumption is certainly not required!

Although the meetups are popular, many UK-based editors still don't know about them. It would be great to welcome some fresh faces, so I hope you can come along.

Yours,

James F. (talk) 09:27, 3 August 2008 (UTC)

Please forgive the slightly impersonal mass-invite!

Orphaned non-free image File:RodolfoMoralesAngeldeAnoranza.jpg[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:RodolfoMoralesAngeldeAnoranza.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of "file" pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Skier Dude (talk) 07:29, 9 January 2010 (UTC)

London Wikimedia Fundraiser[edit]

Good evening! This is a friendly message from Chase me ladies, I'm the Cavalry, inviting you to the London Wikimedia Fundraising party on 19th December 2010, in approximately one week. This party is being held at an artistic London venue with room for approximately 300 people, and is being funded by Ed Saperia, a non-Wikipedian who has a reputation for holding exclusive events all over London. This year, he wants to help Wikipedia, and is subsidising a charity event for us. We're keen to get as many Wikimedians coming as possible, and we already have approximately 200 guests, including members of the press, and some mystery guests! More details can be found at http://ten.wikipedia.org/wiki/London - expect an Eigenharp, a mulled wine hot tub, a free hog roast, a haybale amphitheatre and more. If you're interested in coming - and we'd love to have you - please go to the ten.wikipedia page and follow the link to the Facebook event. Signing up on Facebook will add you to the party guestlist. Entry fee is a heavily subsidised £5 and entry is restricted to over 18s. It promises to be a 10th birthday party to remember! If you have any questions, please email me at chasemewiki at gmail.com.

Hope we'll see you there, (and apologies for the talk page spam) - Chase me ladies, I'm the Cavalry (talk) 23:48, 12 December 2010 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of File:Patrick & Patrick from Faile.jpg[edit]

A tag has been placed on File:Patrick & Patrick from Faile.jpg requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section F9 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the image appears to be a blatant copyright infringement. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted images or text borrowed from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously and persistent violators will be blocked from editing.

If you think that the page was nominated in error, contest the nomination by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion" in the speedy deletion tag. Doing so will take you to the talk page where you can explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but do not hesitate to add information that is consistent with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Kelly hi! 14:11, 23 March 2012 (UTC)

Non-free rationale for File:RodolfoMoralesOrquestadelasMuchachas.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:RodolfoMoralesOrquestadelasMuchachas.jpg. I notice the file page specifies that the file is being used under non-free content criteria, but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia is acceptable. Please go to the file description page, and edit it to include a non-free rationale.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified the non-free rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'file' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 13:24, 5 June 2012 (UTC)
